Abstract

This article re-examines the history of the most famous symbol of the Russian monarchy, the Cap of Monomakh, which is usually dated to the 14th century. For the first time in the historiography, the author studies the Cap in conjunction with the helmets commissioned by the princes of Moscow for their heirs , including the hel met of Ivan the Terri ble (now kept in Stockholm) and the helmet of Ivan the Terrible ’s heir Ivan Ivanovich from the Kremlin museums. The paper argues that the Cap and the helmets constituted a single set of dynastic headgear which accentuated the main priorities of the dynastic policy of Muscovite rulers: the continuity and succession of power. On the basis of a critical re-examination of written and visual sources, the paper questions the traditional dating of the Cap to the 14th c. and argues that it took it present shape between 1505 and 1526.
